According to Balkan Insight it’s not clear that the murder linked to journalistic activities. We will anylyze all ways that linked to murder. Marinova’s last show was an interview in which she work on case of fraud involving EU funds and more with Reomanian Journalist Attila Biro. In this case most important part is EU funds fruad case. According to CPJ research, two investigative journalists also killed in the EU.
Slovak investiative journalist Jan Kuciak was one of the victem of EU case who wsas shot dead in Febrauary 2018 in SLocakia, and also second investigarer journalist and blogger Daphne Caruanna Galizia was also killed in Ocober 2017.
